The woman, who cannot be named, was in her late 20s when she was referred to the Australian Women’s Health Service, where she was advised that she could not get a new abortion after her previous abortion.
She told the ABC she was told by the nurse at the clinic where she received the referral that the abortion was not possible because she had too young to obtain a licence for a second pregnancy.
The woman said she was then told that the pregnancy would cause her to become too old for an abortion.
“The doctor who referred me said, ‘You’ll die,'” she said.
I can’t get a second abortion.””
I’m 25 and I’m pregnant.
I can’t get a second abortion.”
Ms Lathie said she did not receive the same treatment in the past and felt she had not been given any warning of the risks of a second child.
“I think it’s just really upsetting that it was a woman’s choice,” she said, adding she was not surprised by the doctor’s decision.
“That’s the way it was.
I was expecting the same thing to happen to me.”
Ms Lathsie said her abortion was in July this year and that she had gone into labour at the age of 26 weeks.
She said she had been offered a range of options for the second child but she had decided against it.
“If you’re 25 and you’re having a baby and you don’t want to get pregnant and you think you’re too old and you need a second baby, you shouldn’t have to wait,” she told the broadcaster.
Ms Larisa said she would like to see a review of the laws regarding abortion in Australia, including the restrictions on when and how many children an abortion is allowed to carry out.
